Take Care of Your Teeth!

Good oral health is an essential part of staying healthy. Poor oral health can contribute to several chronic diseases such as diabetes, heart disease and stroke. It’s important to get your teeth cleaned at least twice per year. Your dentist will look for gum disease and mouth and throat cancers and you can tell him or her about any tooth or face pain you might be having. 

You should take your children age 2 and older to the dentist twice per year, too. They need to establish a relationship with a dentist and learn good brushing and flossing habits. If you’re a Healthy Michigan Plan member, you have free coverage through Delta Dental. Go to www.deltadentalmi.com for details.

If you put off going to the dentist due to the pandemic, now is the time to make an appointment. Dental offices have added steps to sanitize and clean during and after each visit for your protection due to COVID-19. You can feel confident that a visit to the dentist is safe for you and your family. 

Call Customer Service at 888-327-0671 (TTY: 711) if you don’t have a dentist or have questions.
